In the past term, the Junior Infants have been working on the Gymnastics strand while also developing the fundamental movement skill of walking. We focused on learning three types of rolls - the pencil roll, sausage roll and egg roll. We worked on a number of balances. We used everything we learned over the block to put together simple sequences. This was a great opportunity for the children to work in small groups and to showcase their developments.
The children have been working hard towards receiving our Active School flag. We take regular movement breaks and rainy day breaks. Look at us dancing!
Over the next few weeks, we will be working on the Atlethics strand with a special focus on the fundamental movement skill of running.
